I received another e-mail from Winter:

Dearest Friends,

An update of sorts, if you will indulge me.
Patience in all things; the story will be told.
The puzzle is not like a blossom opening,
making itself apparent to all.
Rather it like a growing season,
seeds sown and watered and bathed in sunlight,
to grow within
to be harvested in the future
when the need is greater.

Melissa

Our story now merges with Melissa's story, and her story will become a story within a story. You can see why I implore you to be patient. We are all much closer now to being on the same page.

If you'll remember from my last letter, Melissa was the escort that H assignment to me for safety reasons.

I met Melissa at the airport and she was not what I expected, which will become important later. All you need to know now is that she was dressed like a school girl and carried a backpack which she would not be parted with. Nor would she divulge to contents of said backpack.

As she escorted me around the airport I was amazed at how fluent she was in multiple languages and local dialects, including English. She seemed much older and more confident than her young face and body revealed. Frankly, her demeanor was like someone from the armed forces, but she denied such a connection.

Once we were safely on the plane she told me of growing up in a very primitive and rural part of the country, where she longed to escape the drudgery of farm work and go to the city. Eventually, her wish came true when she was sold to a man who lived in the city.

"He was a terrible person," she said, opening a can of diet Coke that she begged from the flight attendant.

"How did you get away from him?" I asked.

She sipped her Coke and smiled. "I killed him."

More soon.

All my best,
Winter

In our quest of a location, i tried combining stuff. Winter said on Twitter that the story began 6,000 years ago. And in her first email she's referring to a city on a old riverbank. Stumbled on the wikipage of Mesopotamia... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesopotamia.

Founded 6,000 years ago and they were very fond of astrology and mythology. Im not 100% confinced yet, but maybe something to keep in mind

Does anyone know what HRE means? Or who "H" is?

Hi. Am clueless as to H's identity 'tho HRE means Holy Roman Empire. Winter has tweeted/revealed which Emperor.

So i got a nudge:

A further hint for your efforts:

The eight is simply a quantity.

Saturn is also known as...

My thoughts therefore are that we are looking for an 8 letter word linking these 4 or its hinting at the planets. 

Saturn is also known as  Saturnus  (8 letters) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_(mythology)

New email:

Assignment One is Complete
Now that we learned about your location,
we will learn about his.

He is the first and last HRE we will study.
Nobody knows when he was born.
Nobody knows where he was born.
The historical and the present locations will soon collide.

Best Wishes,
Winter

Hi there All. My pure guess is that Winter, if not overwhelmed, is at least whelmed  ;D by the sheer amount of player interest in her latest story. Anyway, am leaving a little tweet reply on her accn't hoping to clarify if/how we should be searching for something of interest "hidden" at Sylvana Stories. Hope that helps.
